Shapeshifter Mania!!!!!

I just have to gush today! I'm very excited! I just sold two novellas to New Concepts Publishing for The Brood Series, stories full of paranormal shapeshifting romance! My very favorite genre! Woo hooooo!

I've based my heroine, Tammie, from Voodoo Moon on my very good friend Tammie who lives in Nebraska. She's an avid reader and the coolest lady I know...ultra sexy, inked all up with beautiful tats and the sassiest personality on earth! I just love her to death, can you tell? Here's some pics of the beautiful lady herself!

Voodoo Moon

When London rock star, Tammie Palmer inherits the historic plantation, Rose Hall in Montego Bay, Jamaica, she decides to make it her new recording studio, moving her band, Witch Storm, to the haunted mansion. Tales of her ancestor, Annie Palmer have been floating around Jamaica for nearly two centuries. Horrifying acts of slave torture, black magic, Haitian voodoo and murder are part of the legend of the White Witch of Rose Hall.

Ancient spells conjure a powerful houngan from the 1800's. A voodoo priest who
performed black magick to shift into a wolf in order to save his wife, Daisy from the White Witch. Now he's alive again, hell-bent on revenge against the witch's ancestor. But how can the shifter voodoo-king punish a woman whose scent reminds him of his former love? Can he confront his past and survive in this new world as a beast, without falling in love with his enemy?

And I'd like to thank my wonderful friend, Rita Thedford, aka Regina Carlysle for critiquing Uncaged and helping me with the time period and language. Believe me, that's the last time I attempt to write historical paranormals...well, never say never, but it was tough. Thank you, Rita for your expertise and your beautiful friendship! I adore you! Muah! And for readers out there who have not discovered her talent, you are missing out! Go check her books out! You'll be hooked. Yes, you can thank me later. I accept bottles of wine as gifts....snort!

Regina Carlysle


When an African lion wakes up on board a ship bound for London in 1772, he has no choice but to shift into the very creature that has captured and caged him in order to free himself. Fifteen years have passed since the lion has called himself by his given name, Bruce Remington. Time enough to forget life as a man, but when Bruce meets the captain’s daughter, Wren Whittier, a lovely quadroon, the scent of a woman comes flooding back to him.

Once back in London, Bruce settles back into the shape shifter community, intent on reclaiming his life as a man and making Wren his wife. When the captain falls ill and dies, Wren is captured by a lynch mob and held prisoner by a small town of superstitious country folk on charges of witchcraft, though witch trials are a thing of the past. Bruce gathers every available London shape shifter and goes in search of the woman he loves. Will the heart of the lion, the very heart that binds them together be strong enough to free her before she’s burned at the stake?

Trailers Coming Soon! Have a beautiful and safe Memorial Day holiday!

MarthaE said...

Congratulations Alisha! Your friend Tammie and your character both sound pretty cool. I like the blurb for Uncaged! When will that be coming out? I'm not familiar with Regina so I will check out her books too!

Alisha Paige said...

Hi Martha!!! I'm so happy you stopped by. I don't have a release date yet for Uncaged or for Voodoo Moon. These are both novellas and part of a series called The Brood at New Concepts Publishing. The publisher has not decided on release dates yet but check back soon. I just signed the contracts last week. I will let everyone know as soon as I hear.

Oh and Tammie (my sweet friend) is VERY cool and a ton of fun, just like Tammie Palmer from Voodoo Moon..snicker!

Hugs to you!
